#tbt w/ retired #FredFriendly Prof. Dick Wald. Q: What's the take away from your class Critical Issues in Journalism? A: How to think about any story or event. Not just what you see in front of you but the context in which it lives.
Prof. Duy Linh Tu says, "Dick Wald, simply, is my hero." Abi Wright, executive dir of Prizes at the Jschool says, "With humor and insight, Dick Wald can navigate through some very tough discussions about reporting, ethics and standards. As the duPont Awards jury chair, Dick has demonstrated a truly unique ability to lead a room full of strong opinions about journalism to consensus. He makes it look easy, but it's not." #cjs16
